Limited-edition adds luxury features for economy price
Update (11/4): Honda Australia has confirmed 180 examples of the Civic VTi-S Luxe will be available locally.
The limited-edition Honda Civic VTi-S Luxe is now on sale in Australia, priced from $26,490 before on-road costs.
Based on the VTi-S grade, which is one rung up from the base level, the Luxe gets several luxury and convenience items for an extra $2000 over the standard variant.
Unique features include leather-appointed seat trim, heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, piano black sports front grill, and premium paint as standard.
This adds to the VTi-S's specification which includes keyless entry with push-button start, LaneWatch side camera system, front and rear parking sensors, 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog-lights and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Four exterior paint finishes will be offered – White Orchid (pearl), Lunar Silver (metallic), Modern Steel (metallic) and Cosmic Blue (metallic).
Power comes from the same 104kW/174Nm 1.8-litre naturally-aspirated four, mated as standard to a continuously-variable transmission (CVT).
